Jessica has also written over a dozen paranormal romance and fantasy romance novels over the last two years as a ghostwriter. When not writing, Jessica loves dancing, board games, stand up comedy, and many activities of the outdoorsy variety–gardening, hiking, skiing–and her bird-watching in her backyard led to the creation of the ‘live tweet show’ Real Housebirds of Kansas, a satirical online chronicle of bird feeder drama. She has been married for eleven years and has two sons and a giant ball of fur who poops in a box. She knows entirely too much about coffee and movies, and would really like to own a pet snake someday.
